Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found in all parts of the body.
It helps form cell membranes and is involved in the production of some hormones and vitamin D.
Excess cholesterol can build up in the arteries, narrowing them and slowing or
blocking blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs.
